The workshop brings together a diverse, interdisciplinary group of scholars and practitioners exploring questions related to the politics and ethics of heritage-making, curation, and use.
It builds on existing conversations and practices to provide a space for multidisciplinary conversation on the responses, reactions, and resonance of maritime heritage across Asia. To this end, we have three main objectives:
Amplify local voices by supporting interdisciplinary collaboration, experiential learning, exchange and best practices in maritime heritage
Advance use and access to technology and digital tools; as well as other relevant knowledge for heritage-making
Interrogate the relevance and political impact of maritime heritage creation in the region
The sessions will be led by representatives from the Maritime Asia Heritage Survey (MAHS) project based at Kyoto University, the Singapore Historical GIS (SHGIS) project based at Asia Research Institute, and the Visual Archives of the Silk and Spice Routes (VASSR) digital platform, based at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy.
